'm in the minority but i believe that in the nfl if a player and the coach get together and decide, you know, what we're going to do here regarding injury and keep him in the game, keep him in the game. >> he's a 22-year-old rookie. the coach has 30, 40 years experience coaching. up to the coach to say, hey, i don't think that you can play this game and putting in kurt cousins and maybe we'll win. >> this isn't the high school regionals. this is the nfl playoffs. they know their bodies. 90% of the players on that field for both are injured at this point. you play through injury. i don't have a problem with him gutting it out. he came in hurt already and they felt that he was a better option than the backup quarterback to try to win the game. did it play out that way? it didn't and ended like this. there are a lot of factors involved not the least of which is that turf coming loose under his feet. you think they have enough money to fix it. >> we don't know the extent. he'll have an mri on monday but i think it's an absolute gis grace that a nfl playoff game on a field that looks like that. dirt that'

about sports and sports injuries. in the nfl especially. remember junior seau last year who took his own life. he shot himself in the chest because he wanted his brain to be studied. the doctors looked at his brain and told the family and they report this morning that his brain did test positive for chronic traumatic encephalopathy or cte repeated blows to the head and head injuries that can lead to dementia, memory loss. it is a problem that's plagued a lot of former nfl players. this is the issue that the nfl has to address when we talk about helmet to helmet blows and the sort of violent nature of the nfl. >> bill: so much evidence of this. i think dave zirin told us there are 9,000 lawsuits. phenomenal number. >> peter: one big lawsuit with several former players injuries lead -- brain injuries are leading to major problems. which leads us to this story. virginia commonwealth university did a study and looked at how we, as a nation, are doing in the health department. >> bill: this is stunning. >> peter: turns out we're not doing so great. americans die sooner and experience higher r

. seau joins a long list of other nfl super men whose brains were so badly injured that their lives were cut short. shane, who committed suicide three years ago at the age of 38, was suffering from cte. john grimsley, who died from an accidental gunshot wound at the age of 45 had cte. terry long, who died as a result of drinking copious amounts of antifreeze and was suffering from cte, and the legendary mike webster, whose final days were spent urinating into his own oven suffering from amnesia, dementia, and depression. he, too, had cte. interestingly, given the obsession with rg3's latest injury, there was much less attention when he went down with concussion earlier in the season. and while his ligaments have now been surgically reconstructed, it's not his knee we s
the broncos will fare in the nfl play-offs, bengals, houston, colts, ravens, where is your money? >> let me just say, we're not at all optimistic about the broncos here in denver. listen, we take one game at a time. one game at a time in this great city, so we'll watch every nfl game this weekend and we're going to root on our broncos come next weekend. and we -- although we're optimistic we're going to be in new orleans, we'll take one game at a time. >> okay. i'm glad i asked that question last. i think we could have gone on and on had we started with that one. mayor hancock, thank you for being with us and go broncos. >>> lance armstrong and what we may be considering to admit so he can resume his athletic career. we have a new report on "weekends with alex witt." we'll do almost anything. out for drinks, eats. i have very well fitting dentures. i like to eat a lot of fruits. love them all. the seal i get with the super poligrip free keeps the seeds from getting up underneath. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc free. with just a few dabs, it's clinic
in general. >> it is a toxic franchise. if you rated the different franchises in the nfl that have a high level of toxicity, redskins are probably in the top five. of that group. and my colleague thomas boswell wrote a column about this. he wasn't necessarily blaming directly the redskins but his point is when you go for the quick fix at all times, it is impossible to see the long-term view. that was the case that happened in that game. even beyond what was the injury, it wasn't the smart move to win that specific game. the short-term move, in my opinion, was the wrong move and in the long-term it didn't work out either. >> suched a good point. if you look at the franchise at least under the leadership of the danny dan schneider it has been quick fix after quick fix. let's get bruce smith to deion sanders. throwing people in and putting people at risk like they did with rgiii. they haven't taken the time to look ahead, build a good, solid franchise team and it really might have bit them in the last game. >> yeah. this is the one time that they did take the time to look ahead in terms of w
at the brain of the late nfl line baker junior seau and the ten-time all pro committed suicide in may. specialists who have studied him closely say that he has evidence of scarring and a condition called chronic traumatic enself lop tea e.ect. we'll have a live report from sanjay gupta. particularly when you're talking young kids and so forth, we've heard about the issue of concussion cans. >> sanjay has done a lot of research, a lot of work on these concussions, these head injuries from football. it's a serious, serious subject. >> that's reason enough to tune in and continue to stay tuned in. >> it was such a tragic loss. i remember the day upon hearing the news of his suicide. really, really sad. >> all right. thank you. >>> we're just about to get a close look at assault weapons. they are likely to become the targets of proposed gun control laws again. but, first, what's wrong with this picture? our strategy session is looking at whether the president needs to recruit more women and minority members for the top jobs in his second term. keep my eye on her...to but, i didn't always
? >> steve: nfl replacements. >> gretchen: they were not popular. remember some of those calls. >> steve: here is the good news, congress. there are things and people more unpopular than you. john edwards more unpopular than you, congress. kim kardashian more unpopular. >> gretchen: i don't believe that one. >> steve: telemarketers more unpopular. north korea, more unpopular than congress. >> brian: here is the thing, i'm going to go to bat for congress for a second because you can't win. if you are someone like mitch mcconnell and you say i'm here to get things done. i'm going to use the maximum power i have. i'm going to reach across the aisle and get something done, they're gog run somebody against you. how can dee that? let's get another candidate to primary him. if you don't do anything, you're there to get something done, why don't you get something done? i'm standing for something, but you got to get something done. what do you want them o do? sit there and say, i'm only going to believe one thing or do you want thome compromise and get the best deal they can get? i wish the presi
with attitudes such as yours. >> he's an nfl quarterback. >> i actually thought mark was going to make the opposite point because the way they've handled strasburg with the nationals has been a model of caution and it's worked out really well for the nationals. i'm with the anti-shanahan caucus here. i'll also say that even if you take the rg3 thing out, pete carroll outcoached shanahan all game long. beyond even the decision to keep the quarterback in. shanahan made four, five huge mistakes in coaching over the course of the game. i think you have a reason to fire him even if he hadn't screwed up the rg3 thing. >> i would argue going fourth down and 14, that that was a big mistake. >> yeah. >> there were still 4:30 left or something. >> that's more time than is left in this block. >> even if you weren't concerned about the health of rg3, what about the health of your team winning the game? he couldn't use his leg. he couldn't throw the ball. he hit his hand on somebody's helmet. it gives you a better chance to win. >> it's not as if what happened last night on the field is not going t
